Ya I got close to 15 I haven't had a chance to accurately count. I thought I'd get more as it was her 2nd drop for me. But big momma is ready so she's in the birthing tank now lol. I hope you get some crazy strain colors.

Well I was wrong! lol I had thought that she was dropping because I found the five fry next to her in the tank and she is obviously close to dropping but she didn't have anymore in the nursery tank and I found six more in the big tank this afternoon and my female that I thought was in the early stages is no longer gravid. Lol guess that's what I get for thinking! Which means that my mama still has yet to drop, wonder how many she will have?

Well she's dropping at this moment, so far I've counted 21 and I don't think she's done yet. I never get tired of watching my guppies drop

Do you sell them when they're full grown adults or as fry still? I have lots and I'm trying to figure out what to do with them.

My lfs won't take them until they are at least 3-4 Weeks old. She pays .25 a guppy or a little more if its unique in color. But she will only take 30 at a time.

Nice drop you got there. Came home today to 9 guppy fry. I'm sure she ate the rest while I was at work. But I have another platy in the birth tank. Too bad we couldn't trade down the road lol
